I've disabled all non-essential Microsoft services at start-up and everything I don't want running automatically

Interesting. Though I've done nothing with my RAM perhaps something happened to cause a circumstance like this. What method did you use to reset it? I'm not too keen about doing it physically. Would killcmos work? (not sure if I like the name of that app)

All I see is Information and looked them up a bit but I found no clear answer on Google.

My motherboard has a jumper to reset the CMOS. Another method is to pull the coin shaped battery on the motherboard and leave it out for a few minutes. Be sure to note all your settings before doing this, you may want to write them down also.

Windows crashed. Now can't boot, even in repair mode or safe mode.
Let me open by saying I'm too old to understand most of the jargon and directions found in a technical forum like this. I've been trying to fix this myself for about two weeks, and have made so many changes, I've probably made a complete hash of it. The latest thing I did was to attempt a...
